The Threadless 'Ugly Summer Sweater' probably has its roots in those Christmas sweaters that your Grandma gave you during the holidays. Those darn ugly xmas sweaters. Once laughed upon, but now a big part of our culture and a humorous part to our wardrobe.

And now, we can enjoy this humor through the summer. The 'Ugly Summer Sweater' is funny re-make of a Xmas sweater, re-told using iconic summertime elements. The knitted hot dog in the middle of the shirt just puts it over the top. It's sure to become a hit with all ages, and printed on t-shirts, tanks and hopefully much more.

Threadless runs various contests on their website. This design was submitted for the 'Threadless Loves Summer' contest and has a great chance of winning. If enough people vote it up, this shirt will be printed! Stats for TV-Inspired Tees Trending: Older & Warm
